Hundreds of socialists, environmentalists and climate activists attended the first Ecosocialist Conference in New York City last month. One of the featured speakers at the conference was Jill Stein, the nominee of the Green Party during the 2012 national election in the US, who held a talk about how capitalism is killing the planet.
Besides linking the economic and climate crisis, Stein also discussed the politics of fear, Barack Obama's environmental failure and the highly controversial Keystone XL pipeline. You can watch her 30 minute long talk in this video.
